Exercises after Hip Replacement Rehabilitation

Created By: The Academy

Description:
List of exercises to perform after hip replacement.

Instructions:
Always check with your therapist or physician before attempting these exercises. Perform them each day, or at least every other day. Use a resistance that allows you to perform the exercise correctly. Start by performing these exercises slowly and correctly for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat that 3 to 5 times, or until you start to feel a burn in the muscle, you get tired, or you no longer can correctly control the movement. Gradually increase the time you perform the exercises. Once you can perform these exercises for 3 bouts of 1 minute, increase the band resistance and go back down to 5 sets of 15 seconds. Perform these exercises on BOTH legs if you have time.
